The Top 40 Country Songs list for May 2024 features three names you never connected to country music before this year.

Beyonce remains in the Top 5 with "Texas Hold 'Em," but that hit has been passed by Shaboozey, who has the No. 1 song in country as May begins. "A Bar Song (Tipsy)" came out of nowhere and dang near debuted on top of this monthly list.

Additionally, a viral hit by Dasha slots in at No. 5. Of the three, she's the only one getting significant airplay, thanks in part to a featured performance at the 2024 CMT Music Awards.
